of religion in the western world. this is about 50 minutes. [applause] >> thank you, thank you all for coming out at lunch time, thank you for that lovely introduction. i am honored by the presence of everyone here and grateful to heritage for this opportunity to talk about "how the west really lost god" 11. a few weeks ago report in great britain made headline news, argued the senate 2011 census numbers it looked as if christians would be a minority of the population there even sooner than originally predicted, specifically within the decade. that is one more datum in what looks to be the steady and accelerating pattern of secular station in western europe. the purpose of my book is to consider that pattern and the related pattern of secularization in the united states and elsewhere in the west in a new way. one thing i can say for sure is the new book doesn't. on a small canvas. it is about god, western civilization, men, women, the sexual revolution, theology, sociology and a few other things. if we left any big themes out the critics will put the man as they often do when a generalist lik
